Ive received a 15% code at the entertainer website I don't have a use for it yet so if anyone can use it to ahead.
Let people know of you've claimed it save them trying it after its gone.
Hopefully In Demand can offer Tigertrack a bit latter and perhaps some SDCC items too.
Hopefully the maker of the tail accessories will produce a yellow tail too - but if they don't i'll buy an extra white one and spray it yellow.
kapow have got tigertracks £25
Do you need to spend a certain amount to qualify, or is this for any order?
As far as I know there's no minimum spend mentioned.
Just seems to me that the chances of actually getting something you pre-order are much higher with In Demand Toys overall.
I'm not that worried though as there is a cluster of other items due very soon so, Tigertrack might show up with those. I might consider Kapow if there is no other options though.
so will sleep optimus also be an amazon exclusive here in the uk? as I don't see kapow or idtoys have it on preorder..
He was listed on Amazon UK for a while, but it’s currently unavailable. Might be worth keeping an eye on the page though.
I pre-ordered Jet Mode Shatter with Kapow and it was sent out fine.
In Demand have now also listed Tigertrack, same price as Kapow. I wonder if they too are having to import?
I've never had an issue pre-ordering with Kapow, though I have heard other people having issues with both sites, though as I understand its not been the fault of the sites themselves, rather Hasbro/other companies at fault for one reason or another.
The trouble with pre-orders at the minute is pre-ordering multiple items that are stated to be due at the same time but have a habit of turning up on different dates. I now only pre-order what I think will be hard to come by (gen selects or anything that won't see brick and mortar)
and share pre-orders between sites to justify getting shipped separately if they do happen to see release at the same time.
Yeah, my only negative experience with pre-ordering from Kapow thus far was the shit show with Hasbro UK screwing them over by making the Netflix Voyagers exclusive to Smyths at the last minute rather than general retail. My only complaint with that was that they didn't contact me about it and I had to ask them but once I did contact them they were very open and apologetic about the situation which was beyond their control.
The only thing I've pre-ordered and not received from Kapow was the Diaclone Tri-Dasher and that was because they never got it. Had no trouble getting my money back for it though.
I've pre-ordered from both and never had any major issues, personally I prefer ID simply as I found they tended to dispatch things quicker, and I had a few examples if getting dispatch notifications from kapow several days ahead of them actually sending things off. but its a minor quibble really.
Smyths toys are now open in Scotland from today, June 29th. I went into the Aberdeen store earlier this afternoon and the place looked great! Full shelves everywhere! Also the most transformers I think I’ve ever seen in there!
what a beautiful sight
Given my experience of Siege Skywarp I would recommend ordering from Amazon US.
I ordered “Amazon exclusive” Siege Skywarp from Amazon UK and they left the order open until last week then cancelled it. Others have had this experience.
It suggests that “Amazon exclusive” is actually “Amazon USA exclusive” and that other Amazons are not equivalent.
